Ductless Heating and Cooling for Ferrari in Trophy Club

A beautiful custom home in Trophy Club Texas was designed and built with an extra large three-bay garage that houses a beautiful and rare Ferrari 599 GTO automobile. The garage was well appointed but suffered from extreme temperature swings in our harsh Texas climate.

The Problem:

The Solution:

This beautiful and rare Ferrari GTO automobile is being exposed to temperature extremes in an otherwise luxurious Texas garage.

Benchmark Service installed a powerful and reliable Mitsubishi MUZ-GL 24 heating and cooling system.

The Design

The homeowners searched for an air conditioning system for a garage and found Benchmark Service, the #1 Diamond Elite Mitsubishi Dealer in North Texas. Jack Schmidt of Benchmark Service met with the homeowners and evaluated the space for the best possible placement and equipment sizing for the space based on the garage door orientation and space insulation. Mr. Schmidt proposed that the MUZ-GL 24 heat pump be installed. It’s a powerful, high-efficiency, single zone ductless system the can be set to automatically maintain a set temperature range.

The Installation

The center of the east wall was chosen as the optimal installation location for the indoor unit as it provided access to the attic for the line sets to be run discreetly to the outdoor unit. The outdoor unit was installed near the existing conventional air conditioning equipment for the home. The MHK1 wireless control was chosen as an optional wall-mounted thermostat in order to provide automatic heating and cooling temperature set point range.

The Benefits

Mitsubishi ductless air conditioning systems like this are some of the most versatile and efficient A/C systems available today. A garage must be conditioned using a separate system from the rest of the house due to carbon monoxide concerns. Keeping an automobile in a conditioned space greatly increases the lifespan of various components. Studies show that a battery that is stored at 68° f versus 80° f has a 30% increase in the number of charge and discharge cycles during the life of the battery. Fuel and lubricant degradation is greatly decreased. Plastics, rubber, leather, and paint last longer.

Other benefits are that the garage becomes more usable space, the load on the air conditioning in the home is decreased because the walls that communicate with the garage are no longer hot in the summer or cold in the winter, and it’s a pleasure to get into an automobile that’s already acclimated before you take it out for a drive. This family’s garage will be cool and comfortable all summer long, and warm in the winter, without causing a spike in their electric bills because a Mitsubishi ductless system only uses about as much energy as a light bulb.
